After The Storm

Well, last night was pretty wild.  The wind was whipping the trees into a frenzy and the rain was lashing against the windows. We couldn't see down to the end of the garden.

This morning is certainly sunnier and warmer but still quite breezy, with a muggy feel to the air.

P swept up most of the debris from the storm and we checked to see which plants were damaged.  Our old pear tree is leaning alarmingly so it has now been propped up with a stake. We shall see how it survives.

We harvested some sugar snap peas from the battered plant and dug up some potatoes. 

Meanwhile, here are a few of the pretty things still hanging on.

  1. My goodness is that Monbretia (Crocosmia) in bloom? If it is my OH will be so jealous! Even in Donegal where I have a mobile home they're just about coming into bloom now...

  2. We are only 139 miles from The Isle of Man but there was no sign of a storm in Sheffield on Sunday night.

    1. I should complain to the Met Office if I were you. Demand compensation for missing out.
